1 Pavl the seruaunte of Iesus Christ, called to be an Apostle, put aparte to preach the Gospell of God 2 (which he promysed a fore by his prophetes in ye holy scriptures) 3 off his sonne, which was begotte of ye sede of Dauid after the flesh: 4 and mightely declared to be the sonne of God after the sprete which sanctifieth, sence the tyme that he rose agayne from the deed, namely, Iesus Christ oure LORDE, 5 by whom we haue receaued grace and Apostelshippe amonge all Heythen, to set vp the obedience of faith vnder his name, 6 of whom ye are a parte also, which are called of Iesus Christ. 7 To all you that be at Rome, beloued of God, and sayntes by callynge Grace be wt you and peace fro God oure father, and the LORDE Iesus Christ. 8 First, I thanke my God thorow Iesus Christ for you all, that youre faith is spoken of thorow out all the worlde. 9 For God is my witnesse ( whom I serue in my sprete in the Gospell of his sonne) that without ceassynge I make mencion of you besekinge allwayes in my prayers, 10 that I mighte once haue a prosperous iourney ( by the will off God) to come vnto you. 11 For I longe to se you, that I mighte bestowe vpon you some spirituall gifte to stregth you 12 (that is)that I mighte be conforted with you, thorow yor faith & myne, which we haue together. 13 But I wolde ye shulde knowe (brethren) how that I haue often tymes purposed to come vnto you (but haue bene let hither to) that I mighte do some good amonge you, like as amonge other Gentyles. 14 I am detter both to the Grekes, and to the vngrekes, to the wyse and to the vnwyse. 15 Wherfore (as moch as i me is) I am ready to preach the Gospell vnto you at Rome also. 16 For I am not ashamed of the Gospell of Christ: for it is the power of God, which saueth all that beleue theron, the Iewe first & also the Greke: 17 for in it ye righteousnes that is of value before God, is opened, which cometh out of faith i to faith. 18 As it is wrytte: The iust shal lyue by his faith. For ye wrath of God is declared from heauen vpon all vngodlynes and vnrighteousnes of me,which witholde the trueth of God in vnrighteousnes: 19 because that it, which maye be knowne of God, is manifest with the. For God hath shewed it vnto the, 20 that the inuisible thinges of God (that is, his euerlastinge power and Godheade) mighte be sene whyle they are considered by the workes from the creacion of the worlde: so that they are without excuse, 21 in as moch as they knewe, that there is a God, and haue not praysed him as God ner thanked him, but became vayne in their ymaginacions, and their foolish hert was blynded. 22 Whan they counted them selues wyse, they became fooles: 23 and turned ye glory of the incorruptible God in to ye symilitude of ye ymage of a corruptible ma, & of byrdes, & of foure foted, & of crepinge beestes 24 Wherfore God likewyse gaue them vp vnto their hertes lustes in to vnclennes, to defyle their awne bodies in them selues, 25 which turned the trueth of God vnto a lye, & worshipped and serued the creature more then the maker, which is blessed for euer. Amen. 26 Therfore God gaue the vp vnto shamefull lustes. For their wemen chaunged the naturall vse in to the vnnaturall: 27 likewyse ye me also lefte the naturall vse of the woman, and brent in their lustes one on another, and man with man wrought fylthines, and receaued in them selues the rewarde of their erroure, as it was acordinge. 28 And as they regarded not to knowe God, euen so God gaue the vp in to a lewde mynde, to do those thinges which were not comly, 29 beynge full of all vnrighteousnes, whordome, wickednes, couetousnes, maliciousnes, full of enuye, murthur, strife, disceate, euell codicioned whisperers, 30 backbyters, despysers of God, doers of wronge, proude, boosters, bryngers vp of euell thinges, disobedient to their Elders, 31 without vnderstondinge, couenaunt breakers, vnlouynge, stubborne, vnmercifull: 32 which men, though they knowe the righteousnes of God (that they which do soch, are worthy of death) yet not onely do the same, but also haue pleasure in those that do the.
8 There is one man, no mo but himself alone, hauynge nether childe ner brother: yet is there no ende of his carefull trauayle, his eyes can not be satisfied with riches, (yet doth he not remembre himself, & saye:) For whom do I take soch trauayle? For whose pleasure do I thus consume awaye my lyfe? This is also a vayne and miserable thinge. 9 Therfore two are better then one, for they maye well enioye the profit of their laboure. 10 Yf one of them fall, his companyon helpeth him vp againe: But wo is him that is alone, for yf he fall, he hath not another to helpe him vp. 11 Agayne, when two slepe together, they are warme: but how can a body be warme alone? 12 One maye be ouercome, but two maye make resistauce: A thre folde cable is not lightly broken.
40 Let all thinges be done honestly and in order.

1 Yf there be amonge you eny consolacion in Christ, yf there be eny comforte of loue, yf there be eny fellishippe off the sprete, yf there be eny compassion and mercy, 2 fulfyll my ioye, that ye drawe one waye, hauynge one loue, beynge of one accorde, and of one mynde: 3 that there be nothinge done thorow stryfe and vayne glory, but that thorow mekenesse of mynde euery man esteme another better then himselfe: 4 and let euery ma loke not for his awne profet, but for the profet of other. 5 Let the same mynde be in you, that was in Christ Iesu: 6 which beyinge in the shappe of God, thought it not robbery to be equall with God, 7 but made him selfe of no reputacion, and toke vpon him the shappe of a seruaunt, became like another man, 8 and was founde in his apparell as a man: he humbled himselfe, and became obedient vnto the death, euen vnto the death of the crosse. 9 Therfore hath God also exalted him, and geuen him a name, which is aboue all names, 10 that in the name of Iesus euery kne shulde bowe, both of thinges in heauen of thinges vpo earth, and of thinges vnder the earth, 11 and that all tunges shulde confesse, that Iesus Christ is the LORDE vnto the prayse of God the father. 12 Wherfore my dearly beloued, as ye haue allwayes obeyed (not onely in my presence, but now also moch more in my absence) euen so worke out youre awne saluacion with feare and tremblynge. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both the wyll and the deed, euen of his owne good wyll. 14 Do all thinges without murmurynges and disputinges, 15 that ye maye be fautles and pure, and the childre of God without rebuke, in the myddes of ye croked and peruerse nacion, amonge whom se that ye shyne as lightes in the worlde, 16 holdinge fast the worde of life, vnto my reioysinge in the daye of Christ, that I haue not runne in vayne, nether laboured in vayne. 17 Yee and though I be offred vp vpo the offerynge & sacrifice of youre faith, I am glad, and reioyce with you all: 18 be ye glad also, and reioyce ye with me. 19 I trust in the LORDE Iesus, to sende Timotheus shortly vnto you, that I also maye be of good comforte, whan I knowe what case ye stonde in. 20 For I haue no man that is so like mynded to me, which with so pure affeccio careth for you: 21 for all other seke their awne, not that which is Iesus Christes. 22 But ye knowe the profe of him: for as a childe vnto the father, so hath he mynistred vnto me in the Gospell. 23 Him I hope to sende, as soone as I knowe how it wyll go with me. 24 But I trust in the LORDE, that I also my selfe shal come shortly. 25 Neuertheles I thoughte it necessary to sende vnto you the brother Ephraditus, which is my companyon in laboure and felowe soudyer, and youre Apostell, and my mynister at my nede, 26 for so moch as he longed after you all, and was full of heuynes, because ye had herde that he was sicke. 27 And no doute he was sicke, and that nye vnto death: but God had mercy on him, and not on him onely, but on me also, lest I shulde haue had sorowe vpon sorowe. 28 I haue sent him therfore the more haistely, that ye mighte se him, and reioyce agayne, and that I also mighte haue the lesse sorowe. 29 Receaue him therfore in the LORDE with all gladnes, and make moch of soche: 30 for because of the worke of Christ, he wente so farre, that he came nye vnto death, and regarded not his life, to fulfyll that seruyce which was lackynge on youre parte towarde me.
